It’s official – Microsoft has adopted our Nuget package “bootstrap”.
As of Visual Studio 2013, bootstrap is the default Css library for .Net web applications, delivered by the bootstrap Nuget package we created.
How it all began
Over a year ago we announced our new Nuget package called bootstrap, which aimed to spread awareness of the Twitter bootstrap library and to make it easier for .Net developer to use it.
What does adoption mean?
At first, you get to trade emails with Microsoft superstars such as Jon Galloway.
Then, they kick you off the project.
In all fairness they must remove you as owner in order to ensure the code is up to Microsoft standard and won’t be tampered with.
That didn’t upset me too much. The package lives on and has, for my part, done its job. And I’m still listed as the original author.
The ASP .NET team has added a version, upgrading to bootstrap 2.3.1.
The bootstrap library has just released a new mobile-first version 3.0. Smart move, Twitter. That evens the playing field with competing Css library, Zurb Foundation 4. Bootstrap 3.0 even has an extra script for IE8 support.
Hopefully, the good folks at Microsoft will update the NuGet package soon.
For now, its out of my hands.
